I think the universe is challenging this new gratitude space of mine. My first Wednesday...and one of those days which is so eye poppingly full of tiny challenges, huge challenges and enormous tests of patience.
In my regular way I could chronicle this quite entertaining catalogue of domestic tribulations (I must just mention cat vomit as the grand finale..)
I sigh, and breathe out and thank, thank...myself first for remembering to use my skills of listening to divert and soothe a major melt down at a home education group
I am grateful....... for this space here which reminds me to practice being grateful.
........... for the beautiful gardens around me, and the food they produce.
...........for our chickens, the girls have started their spring egg laying with a great fervour, such a treat to hold warm eggs on a frosty morning
...........for the chance to paint and create again, this time with Misty Mawn and her Full Circle online course,
..........for getting to make a handmade art journal for my course with the kids, and its also home ed.
..........For the new climbing club they attend tomorrow which they love and means I get to hang out and drink coffee with some cool mamas and discuss inspiring stuff while Finch naps.
.........For sugar free apricot and carob bars, a tasty new recipe which Tansy can eat.....and everyone likes.
.......for having a nursing baby which makes me sit down in the middle of the day.....a big exhale several times a day.
....this music which I bought at our table top sale today at the home ed group, and which dramatically improved the atmosphere at our homecoming....cat vomit notwithstanding
Well I already feel better .......it would have been easy to slip into a moany evening.....
And I'm grateful for you reading this! Of course!
What are you grateful for?
